Germany: ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions has received a contract from HeidelbergCement to supply a new cement clinker production line. The 4500t/day line will be built at the Schelklingen cement plant in Baden-Württemberg as a replacement for an existing older production line. Start of production is planned for spring 2018.
“Although most of the cement contracts we have been awarded recently have been to build new production capacities in growth regions, this order shows that there is also demand in Europe to modernize and expand existing facilities. Our highly efficient technologies, which we continually improve together with our customers, guarantee maximum reliability and allow producing innovative products in an economical and environmentally friendly way,” said Lothar Jungemann, CEO of the Cement operating unit in the Resource Technologies business unit of ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions.
For the new kiln line ThyssenKrupp Industrial Solutions will supply components including a five-stage, single-strand DOPOL preheater, a POLRO rotary kiln with a POLGUIDE drive system and a POLYTRACK clinker cooler with roll crusher. The design of the calciner used in the preheater is intended to allow high fuel burnout with low nitrogen oxide emissions. The POLYTRACK cooler also features a highly efficient heat recovery system that minimizes fuel input.
